About

Future Business Leaders of America - Phi Beta Lambda is the world's largest collegiate business organization.

Who We Are


FBLA-PBL

Future Business Leaders of America - Phi Beta Lambda is the largest collegiate business organization in the world, helping over 250,000 members prepare for careers in business each year. FBLA-PBL's mission is to bring business and education together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and career development programs.

Berkeley PBL

The UC Berkeley chapter of FBLA-PBL is one of the largest business organizations on campus, and one of few that is sponsored by both the ASUC and the Haas School of Business.

Our distinguishing feature is our organizational structure. 8 project teams, known as committees, focus on different areas in business education, personal development, and media production. We pride ourselves in the diversity of perspectives of our members, through not only their specializations within PBL, but also beyond. Although we are a business organization, only about a third of our members major in business. Others come from a variety of disciplines, from Computer Science to Theater & Performance Studies.

Our goal is to help every member develop personally and professionally. Apart from projects members will complete within their committees, the executive team organizes club-wide workshops and mentorship programs aimed at shaping members into impactful business leaders.
